George,

I run those exact spacers, which I also purchased from EE, and have been very happy with them. While it is impossible to be exact, I think one will provide a little less than 1/2 inch of lift, two will provice a little less than one inch of lift.

I am running just one, on the top of my rear springs. Remember that this one is only for the rear spring, there is a different version for the front spring.

I would strongly recommend using these. Not just because it provides a little extra height, but more importantantly it will greatly smooth out the ride of your vehicle by absorbing road shock. This is the exact reason the spacer was created in the first place for the Range Rovers.

I would attach a photo of the matching front spacer, but it is easier to just go to EE's website, which has much better photos.

Michael

I'm running those in the back and the rubberized shock tower retainers in the front. I dont care much whether they provide anylift but I really like not having the metal-on-metal contact in those locations. Sadly, any benefits in that area were likely nullified by the stupid RN polybushes I put on my chassis.

Yeah, they work great. I used them as small lift blocks to level out my truck.
